This would be like a premier 'ball golf' event making the players putt through a bunch of croquet wickets before they could putt into the hole. Despite all of the downfalls of this course I still think that it creates a lot of drama that has been fun to watch... I'm curious about the statistics of how random players are placing in comparison to the rest of the events.

Yes, it has become the US Tiki Course Championships.

A Tiki Course Championship that you love to watch players fail or succeed at, but hate to watch the means and aesthetics by which they do so.

Are you serious? I can get Netflix, HBO, or Hulu for an entire month at that price. Don't care what kind of quality it is. I can bet it's still a feed filled with ads half the time too . Still wouldn't be worth it if it wasn't

To see Eagle throw OB "on purpose" on hole 3 is just odd. .Drop Zone is so good that it´s ok o throw OB. .is that good hole design?

Eagle broke his hand with that punch to the ground yesterday (maybe a boxer's fracture) but will tee off for the final round despite of it.

Sometimes things just get overlooked. Like the first year they had the event in Jonesboro when Simon was taking that crazy line over the fairway of another hole. They put up a mando to stop it between rounds...

Too many times I've seen him loose his cool and punch the ground. This one will teach him a lesson.
